We all deal with hair problems at some point and whether it’s dry and damaged hair, dandruff, greasy hair or even hair loss, it can make you feel very self-conscious. When your hair doesn’t look the way that you want it and nothing that you try seems to work, it’s so frustrating. But don’t worry because most major hair problems can be solved relatively easily once you know how. These are some of the most common hair problems and how to solve them.
If you have an oily scalp, you’re probably shampooing every single day to stop your hair from looking greasy. But a lot of people worry about the damage that will do to their hair, so is it best to stop shampooing and let it get greasy or carry on shampooing and risk dry, damaged hair?
The key here is using two different types of shampoo. Moisturising shampoo is not great for your scalp because it will only make it more oily, so go for something designed for fine hair. However, you can use a moisturising shampoo on the ends to prevent any dryness caused by regular shampooing. Before you should, it’s also a good idea to brush your hair from the scalp outwards to redistribute the natural oils and condition the hair.
Hair loss is something that most women never expect to happen to them, but it’s more common than you think. If you notice that you are losing a lot of hair, there are many potential reasons. It could be due to severe damage from dyeing your hair too much. In that case, you should slow down with the colouring and use a hydrating hair mask to repair your hair.
However, hair loss may be caused by an underlying medical condition or it could even be caused by stress. In this case, you may need to look into options like an FUE hair transplant or medications to encourage hair growth. The majority of hair loss in women is temporary and with some basic treatments, your hair will be back to normal in no time. If you are concerned about hair loss, it’s best to speak to a professional right away.
We all get split ends from time to time but some people find that it’s a constant problem. If it only happens occasionally, it’s probably been too long since your last haircut. But if you get them all the time, it could be down to excessive heat treatment or maybe you just have weak hair that is prone to splitting. The best way to prevent split ends before they happen is to use a leave-in conditioner on a regular basis. If you use a lot of heat treatments, try to cut back as much as you can and let your hair dry naturally instead of using a hairdryer. You can also get some great heat protectant products that will reduce the damage caused by heat treatments.
